The leader of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan Mawlawi Hibatullah Akhundzada held a gathering with the provincial governors in Kandahar, stressing the need for preserving the Islamic values, Islamic Emirate spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said in a statement.

Akhundzada called for the implementation of Sharia law, saying any law enacted by the people is not acceptable and that every problem should be solved by Sharia, Khaama Press reported.

"Over the past 20 years, there have been a lot of anti-Sharia and Islam rhetoric and laws which are made by the people is not implementable," he was quoted as saying in the statement.

Meanwhile, analysts and local rights activists questioned the implementation of law the so-called Islamic Emirate leadership is biding to implement throughout the country, saying both the fundamental and Sharia laws are crucial for overall development.

"The laws should be implemented so as not to be against and in contrast with Sharia, so if it is something like this, that is an Islamic law," said Ghulam Sakhi Ihsani, university instructor, as per Tolo News.

According to the statement, all rights concerning women and minorities in the country must be under Sharia, stressing the implementation of a latest decree by the supreme leader that has at least six articles.

"How is Sharia law implemented while the schools for girls' students above grade six have remained closed for more than 313 days and women are deprived of their basic rights which is the right to education?" said Marriam Marouf Arveen, a female rights activist.
